More Than Enough

christ_feeding_the_multitudeSometimes it is tempting to wonder if Jesus is aware of, or cares about our needs.  We are just here in the world, holding on in the midst of the swirl of life.

Does Jesus know?  Does Jesus care?  Do we matter to Him in all of the battles and conflicts of life?  With all that we face, are we important to our God?

The answer to that is yes.  Yes we do.  We matter to Him.  No matter what we are going through, we matter to Him.  And no matter what we face, we can rest assured that Jesus is more than enough.  Listen to what we are told today in John 6: 11-13:

11 Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish. 12 When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” 13 So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.

This is the feeding of the five thousand.  There are a million things that we could talk about or focus on in this text.  But let me tell you what I came away with from this passage.  Look at what we see about the needs of the people.

Verse 11 – they ate all the wanted.

Verse 12 – they had enough to eat.

Jesus met them where they were, and He made sure that they had enough.  He took care of them.  He provided for them.  He did not forget them.

Just as He will not for you.  He will take care of you.  He will provide for you.  He will make a way for you.  He will.  He will not forget you, no matter where you find yourself today.

He loves you.

And He is more than enough for you, today.  He truly is.

Rest in Him today.   No matter how high the mountain, no matter what you face, Jesus Christ is more than enough today.  You don’t have to worry.  You don’t have to fret.  You don’t have to fear.

Jesus is more than enough today.

Today, trust in Him.  He has this.  He is more than enough.
